Thursday, June 27, 2024 at 12:00pm to 1:15pm

Building E14: Media Lab, 6th floor, room 633
75 AMHERST ST, Cambridge, MA 02142

What are different modes of writing about design, and what may be diverse conceptions of the book as a design medium?

Catherine D’Ignazio and Dietmar Offenhuber’s recent explorations of the interrelations between data and design help reveal the ways in which diverse social collectives, from scientists to activists, can engage with the design and representation of data.

D’Ignazio, author of Counting Feminicide: Data Feminism in Action (MIT Press, 2024), and Offenhuber, author of Autographic Design: The Matter of Data in a Self-Inscribing World (MIT Press, 2024) will present their latest books in a conversation moderated by MIT Press Executive Editor Gita Manaktala.

This event is part of the DRS24 Conference.
